You may have heard of the NH Commissioner of Education’s “Waiver of Annual” Evaluations. Skipping this year’s homeschool evaluations may lump homeschoolers in with the public study-from-home students, many of whom are not being held to traditional standards of completion. We are already seeing pushback against homeschooling, and admitting en-masse that we are incapable of completing the minimal requirements of state law seems unwise.
If you are interested in fulfilling New Hampshire’s statutory homeschool evaluation requirements, getting some practical feedback on your program, and finishing the year strong, consider scheduling an online evaluation today.
Bethany Barnosky is a master teacher, tutor, and educational consultant living in sunny Peterborough New Hampshire. As a college student, she set aside her interest in the aerospace industry in order to graduate from Keene State College and pursue her passion for teaching. While she did earn her blue belt in Sei Goshen Ryu Kempo Karate in 2011, she considers homeschooling her daughter to be her greatest accomplishment.
Bethany is a passionate learner and right-brained problem-solver who loves factoring polynomials, formulating proofs, and discovering the "hidden side of everything."
As a portfolio evaluator, my job is not to critique your homeschool programs, organizational skills, or schooling choices. I simply evaluate whether your portfolio shows that your student has fulfilled the educational requirements of the law.
